O'Neill is the family/clan name, for example, Padraic MacConchobar Uí Neill, would be Padraic son of Conchobar of the tribe Neill. Having said that, what you've said has absolutely nothing to do with what i asked. The Term 'The O'Neill' is the term used (in english) to denote the elected leader of the clan, possibly 'An Uí Neill' in Irish (though prehaps not, it would have been old/middle irish).
In case you missed it, i asked would the Mountain/Northern Clans have an agnatic elective/senority type succession i believe the closest thing CK2 has to Tanistry, the mention of O'Neill was as an example.
